A single-vehicle crash on Saturday again snarled traffic on Highway 101 in Summerland. 

At approximately 5:30 p.m., California Highway Patrol officers and Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Department personnel were dispatched to a report of an overturned vehicle that landed on its roof on northbound Highway 101 in Summerland, according to Battalion Chief Michael Gallagher.

The overturned vehicle blocked both northbound lanes. Gallagher said. 

Traffic was diverted off the highway at South Padaro Lane until the flipped vehicle could be removed.

The driver received minor injuries but declined to be transported to the hospital, Gallagher said.

All lanes reopened by 6 p.m., but the northbound South Padaro offramp was blocked for a bit while the vehicle was returned to an upright position, according to emergency dispatch reports.

Attenuator barrels, sometimes called crash cushions, in the center divider were damaged in the incident.

The area where the crash happened is part of the Highway 101 widening project where collisions in the area have become a regular occurrence.
